Giving Thanks

Thursday, November 27, 2014

I think Thanksgiving is such a cool holiday.  For one thing, everything (except grocery stores) shuts down for the day and people get to spend time with family.  For another, it is a holiday focused on giving thanks for what we have.  I don't know about you, but I definitely take a lot of the awesome life that I lead for granted.  So much of life today is self-focused and for today, I get to think about the things that have been given to me and for the things I am grateful for.   As I reflect on the life I live, I have determined that I am blessed beyond measure.  I hope you had a Happy Thanksgiving and are feeling extra blessed today, too!

For your enjoyment, a quick festive treat that would make a tasty treat for holiday company, or hungry kids.
Popcorn and M&M's:

1 bag of buttered popcorn (from the store, or kernels popped in a brown paper bag, salted and buttered)
1/2 - 1 cup peanut butter M&M's(my favorite) or regular M&M's

Pop your popcorn and then as soon as you pull it from the microwave, dump the M&M's directly onto the hot popcorn.  Wait 1 minute or so, and eat up.  The M&M's get a little melty from the popcorn and they make a delicious salty-sweet combo!


  1. I think Thanksgiving is a cool holiday as well. We are so blessed.

  2. Yum! Forgot how much I love this combo. I see a movie night in our future...
